Virto di Mare - Quilted

This past Saturday was my first Saturday open since December 31;  the reality of being a basketball mom to three girls has kept me in the bleachers rather than in front of my machines.
However, with a little discipline and LOTS of motivation, I set out to finish up the quilting on Vitro di Mare.

... good ol' Murphy seemed to have other plans in mind!  >:|
Thankfully, I was only sidelined for a few minutes.  Seeing as I was changing out the broken needle, the time was given to perform a quick machine cleaning, removing some lint from under the bobbin and needle area, and then... I was back up-n-runnin'!

The moment a quilt is unwound from the frame is truly always a super amazing moment!  I'm forever in love with this craft!

Being President's Day, we have a scheduled vacation day at school.  Therefore, shortly, I'll be heading downstairs to see if I can finish up a customer quilt that has already been loaded on the frame:  a 103" x 103" log cabin style.  That one will keep me busy for a bit.

Happy Monday everyone!

I like it! And I totally understand - and with 3 and 3 different age groups the likelihood of any game being in the same gym is also very slim! Go mom!

Less than a month from top to quilted?! Not bad!! Looking forward to a beauty shot once it's bound.
